The Atwood jack division got purchased by Lippert, who also owns Happijac. I know I saw some pictures of their “new” truck camper jacks that sort of looked like a blend of Happijac and Atwood, but I just looked at Lippert’s website and all they have is the same old jacks.

If mine ever fail, I’ll replace them with Rieco Titan.

Which Adventurer is the 856,they don't show a 856 so I assume it is either the 89RB or the 86FB..Adventurer truck campers are underrated on the internet in my opinion..I have been in a 86RB and it was rock solid and easily compares to Lance in my opinion..

How did the AF 865 seem room wise,you had issues filming the 865 which you noted..

Host had their Mammoth and Cascade on display. They have a new Yukon which is the same size as the Mammoth and Everest. Eagle Cap had their 1165 and 1200 at the show this year.

Another Super C was the Thor F550 based motorhome. It was smaller than the Dynamax with also a smaller price tag.

Torklift typically has two booths set up at the show. If you paid attention, there will be a new product they have not yet announced.

Another member of RV.net went Friday and we were there on Sunday. While at the show, we met some first time truck camper buyers - Hopefully I did not scare them away and they will visit this forum. We are beginning to look at manufactured homes and park models for future property.

GOOD GRAVY BATMAN!!!
Messed that one up.
These are the corrections.
ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Bath was my winner.
Adventurer 910 Mid Bath was a comparison to the 865. The dinette/fridge slide opened wide and removed the separation and privacy between bedroom and dinette/kitchen areas.

I went through the posts and edited in the corrected information.
Sorry about that Chief...

ARCTIC FOX 865 Mid Wet Bath I goofed, this is it. I did find video of it with the Eagle Cap Models.

I BELIEVE the Yukon will be the one for us Bedlam.

Curious as to wether Host will offer cabinets over the side-slide (small couch dinette) their NEW floorpan doesn't show one.

And two, wether the aft slide will accommodate a drop down sleeper too?

The Yukon uses the same rear slide as the Everest. Host will probably offer the same things in this slide. Remember that Host is very customization friendly, so there are more options than listed on the website and on printed material. Your contact at Host will be Randall and it would benefit you to go through a factory tour and discuss how you would like your camper configured.

BTW: The Yukon bathroom is smaller than the Mammoth. It is the size of the Cascade you may have seen at the show. There is a smaller sink top and less room around the toilet.

Beware that manufactured homes bring lot of legal issues.
Lot of banks will not lend money on them, while lot of jurisdictions will plain not allow them.
My brother put top-end manufactured home on his property in WA over 20 years ago and when divorce forced him to refinance, he had hack of the time to find a bank who would talk to him.
Insurance is other issue, while low-slope roofs and lack of good insulation makes living uncomfortable.
He already had to replace lot of exterior house parts as composite boards and panels deteriorate regardless good paint over them.
If you have some knowledge, you can do owner-builder of stick house and live happy after.
Right to build your own house is in US constitution, although lot of Building Departments will try to tell you otherwise.
